More and more people are discovering camping for themselves, but do not have their own vehicle or caravan. Rental accommodation and mobile homes are a good alternative. For a long time now, most campsites in Europe have offered exciting alternatives to the old-fashioned camping experience in addition to standardised mobile homes. From safari tents and camping barrels to floating mobile homes or tree houses: Exciting experiences and unusual overnight accommodation await you at Europe’s campsites. And all this without having to do without the typical campsite atmosphere. Uwe Frers, Managing Director of PiNCAMP, says: “Campers are becoming more demanding and want experiences with memory value. That’s what exceptional overnight accommodation offers!”. Many of the spectacular glamping accommodations can also be booked on, the ADAC camping portal.

Glamping with a view: Panorama lodges and tree houses
Wake up to a mountain panorama at the Austrian ADAC super site Alpencamping Nenzing. Here, panorama lodges tower over the campsite and offer a spectacular view of the Vorarlberg mountain and valley landscape. A spacious and modern wellness area rounds off the experience. Camping Grubhof, on the other hand, focuses on an authentic Alpine experience. Here, guests can stay in alpine huts with a view of the mountains of the Salzburg region and let off steam on white-water rafting trips on the Saalach. The Schwarzwälder Hof holiday paradise is home to an entire tree house village with comfortably furnished tree house flats perched 10 metres above the treetops of the Black Forest.


Built close to the water: Sea view and floating wooden house
The azure sea is on your doorstep at the ADAC Superplatz Arena Grand Kažela Campsite in Croatia. Luxurious and modern camping villas face the Adriatic Sea and offer a fantastic view. The stylish interior and some of them have their own pools round off the glamping offer.

Private pools or whirlpools are also part of certain rental accommodations at the Croatian super site Camping Polari or the French 5-star site Esterel Caravaning.

A particularly unusual rental accommodation can be found in the holiday paradise of Lake Natterer See. Here you can spend a romantic stay in a floating wooden house with its own terrace and lake access. The nature-oriented 5-star campsite in Tyrol also offers sleeping barrels, tiny houses and safari tents.


A touch of Africa: Glamping close to nature in a safari tent
The safari tent or the safari lodge are particularly popular, because here children and parents alike get their money’s worth. The tents embedded in nature exude a touch of Africa and make children’s eyes light up, while parents find relaxation and peace in nature. Huttopia has established the safari tent as an integral part of the holiday experience. The French campsites Huttopia Wattwiller or Huttopia Fontvieille, for example, offer not only tents but also chalets and lodges and round off the nature experience with a variety of leisure programmes, petting zoos and hiking tours.

The Weekend Glamping Resort in Italy also delights with glamping offers. Fully equipped two-storey wooden chalets with a safari tent on a roof terrace are an absolute family dream. A special feature of these Air Lodges are the skylights with a view of the stars. Another highlight on the site is the possibility to spend the night in a converted school bus.

The ADAC Superplatz Camping & Resort Sangulí Salou in Spain goes one step further and invites campers to spend their holidays in specially designed themed areas with matching rental accommodation. Campers can choose between Africa, the Caribbean or Polynesia. Other unusual accommodation: Camping barrels, tipi tents and tiny houses.

At Camping Heidehof in Baden-Württemberg, you can make yourself comfortable in a small village made of camping barrels. The round wooden accommodation may be small, but it is also particularly cosy. The wooden shelters and tipi tents at TCS Camping Sempach in Switzerland are just as cosy. TCS also offers a special experience in the Swiss mountains: the TCS Pop-Up Glamping Village at 2,000 metres offers 20 tent suites with spectacular views of the mountain panorama.

In the Netherlands, you can rent three tents at once at Camping De Wildhoeve. The campsite’s so-called Artcamp consists of three colourful spherical tents at different heights. The campsite also offers small houses in the middle of the forest with a large window front for a first-class forest experience.
